“It’s gonna be a fucking blood orgy,” said Agustin Segundo Lobos over drinks in downtown Guelph, Ontario. He smiled, “I have been telling that to everyone, ‘A blood orgy.'” Agustin (“Augy” to his friends and fans) is one of the most interesting and iconoclastic young artists to spring onto the art scene in recent years, having created a distinctive and immediately recognizable body of work that elicits intense emotional responses from its viewers.

It is argumentative if the former leader of Pantera, and ongoing Down vocalist, remains undisturbed with the said “love and hate” propeller that both eldest and youthful audiences heave at him in such a relentless manner through social channels. Nevertheless, there is no evidence that suggests the deceleration of this forty seven year old man respecting co-extending activeness.
